So this post just came from Win 3x using IE5. I forgot how much fun vintage computing was.

    I always wanted to try OS/2 (warp?). Haven't thought about it in years... now I'm eyeing my VirtualBox icon and doing a lot of debating :)

    I used to run a 4-node BBS off of OS/2 Warp, it was great!

    Even thought it is IE5 which is widely regarded as crap and just a mass of bugs, you're probably safer browsing with that then a current browser as who is going to actively try to attack with Win16 exploits...

    I guess I should join him. I have one hung off my development lan that hasn't been rebooted in 4 years when its ups died during a lengthy power failure. Eventually the client will stop paying and shotgun and I can kill it and toy hardware. Brain once molested by someone named billg.

    I assume you two won't be using OS/2 with the Windows bolt on feature :D

    This post is coming from Windows NT4 with Internet Explorer 2.0 (Build 1381).

    It's not pretty, but it works.

    Tried that on my first OS/2 Warp 3 install. Wasn't happy with it, upgraded to Blue Spine shortly thereafter. When Warp Connect came out, that's all she wrote!

    Is that Windoze for Workgroups 3.11 with the MS TCP/IP add-on. Or Windows 3.11 with a 3rd party TCP/IP stack (I used FTP Software a bunch & still have the DOS development kit in the big green binder).

    What about QEMM for memory management so you could load your TCP/IP, LanMan, Novell, and Banyan network stacks at the same time?

    I got my first DOS with my 8088 dual 5-1/4 floppy Clone from Chicago Computer Connection. I'm pretty sure all my upgrades came from either EggHead, Elek-Tek or CDW (I remember dragging my NEC-3D home from the downtown store on the subway/bus) -- and then later maybe Computer City or CompUSA.

    I think Windows 3.11 and DOS 6.22 are available on the TechNet downloads for those of you who weren't born when DOS first came out. icon_lol.gif

    Ah, good times. We didn't have much money when I was growing up, so I beg borrowed and stole time on friends and school computers, cut my teeth on CP/M, thought it was great when I got to high school and they had IBM PS/2 8088's that ran DOS 3.3. My very first computer that I could call my own was a piece of crap 80286 with 1 meg of RAM and a 10 meg hard drive that I bought from the classifieds, and I had to wait until I was 16 and could get a job to buy it (just so I could run a BBS!)

    I fondly remember when DOS 5.0 came out and EDIT.COM replaced EDLIN. I remember the horror that was DOS 4.0, and the reason for SETVER.EXE. I remember when DOS 6.0 came out and how I used the multi config options to build a tree out of my CONFIG.SYS so I could just press a number and play my game of choice (with optimized memory settings for that game, of course!) and I remember when I took the risk of using DoubleSpace and it killed my hard drive.

    I miss those nice simple days, when you had to set your IRQ's and base addresses when you added hardware, and you looked for motherboards with a PS/2 mouse port so you could get an IRQ back. ISA video cards, then VLB, and SIMM's, MFM and RLL hard drives, and Packard Bell being a swear word.

    Kids today don't know what they missed

    I have to admit I cheated a little bit and went with WfW. I do have just 3.1 installed, but it's a real pain to get any networking on it. I installed Microsoft's TCP/IP stack for this little gem. I think I'm going to install netscape on it and see how well it does compared to IE5. It's been so long since I've used it.

    I currently have Windows 95 installing, so I'm going to break it out here in a bit. Maybe I'll go download WinNuke. hahaha

    This post came from Abacus 1.0 using ivory beads and a callused fingertip interface.
    I'm no expert, I'm just a guy with some time, money, and the desire to learn a few things.

    Completed ITILv3 on 11/20, working on College & METEO, reading Classics on my Kindle, organizing my music library with Mediamonkey & TuneUp, trying to lose a wee bit of weight by running, eating less, and lifting weights, planning for my stateside vacation, and wasting time posting on forums.

    All right, Windows 95 and IE 4 for this post. haha
